ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Jordan's capital city of Amman is a city of contrasts, the old and new uniquely blending together.

Nearly half of Jordan's population is concentrated in the Amman area and there are plenty of boutiques, restaurants, art galleries and other attractions.

Other major attractions include the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea; the rose-red city of Petra, one of Jordan's major tourist attractions offering giant red mountains, vast mausoleums, the Treasury, shrines and museums.

Other sites to see include Agaba and its sandy beaches, crusader and desert castles and a wide variety of biblical holy sites.

  • Times to Travel: With a range of geographic regions, Jordan's weather is pleasant, but diverse.

    The mountainous region and the north feature a Mediterranean climate. Spring and fall are quite pleasant, summer is hot and winter tends to be rainy.

    Amman is sunny and clear from May to October, with average temperatures around 73° F (23° C). July and August are hot and dry, with high temperatures of 100° F (38° C), but with an average humidity of only 30%, it is not unbearable.

    Aqaba and the Jordan Valley are ideal winter resorts, with temperatures averaging 60 - 72° (16 - 22° C) between November and April and little rainfall.
